Pastel Paintings

Dry pastels are almost pure pigment, the same used in oils, but with a different binder. The colors are very stable and will survive well over time when applied to an archival surface and framed. I enjoy the intense colors of pastels, the immediacy of application, and the ability to layer color. Click on a picture to enlarge it.
